Walter Rodney's expulsion from Jamaica in October 1968, and its consequences, had important implications elsewhere in the Caribbean, especially in Rodney's native Guyana. Recently discovered documents shed much light on the Guyanese reaction to those events, and more broadly on Guyana's reception of Black Power. An exposition of the new documents forms the background to a broader discussion of Rodney's subsequent life and work, up to the point of his assassination in 1980.
